    Joshua Tree Romp Jan. 14th-16th Delayed Trip Report!

    Hey ya'll

    As promised, here are some pics of my romp thru the Joshua Tree National Forest in California. Had a blast...not enough essentials for a successful hang so sorted to ground dwellings. All and all...great part of the country. Kinda glad that we went during the winter...can only imagine the heat during the summer.

    Great time!!!

    Go out and just hang!!!

    I was stationed at 29 Palms Marine Corps Base in the early 80's. Went rock climbing and hiking (and camping using a poncho or sheet as a tent) very often in Joshua Tree Monument. I loved it there, always something to do or somewhere to go. We hiked the road from base out into the monument once and found an artesian well bubbling up thru a rock about waist hi, weirdest thing i had seen at that time. water bubbling up thru a rock in the middle of the desert.

    Beautiful country thanks for sharing...added to the bucket list.
    I would feel more optimistic about a bright future for man if he spent less time proving that he can outwit Nature and more time tasting her sweetness and respecting her seniority. - E. B. White (1899 - 1985)
